The Ultimate Collection

- Renee Geyer

3/5

For a white Aussie Sheila, Renee Geyer sure manages to belt these numbers out.

Her best known hit, Eddy Grant's Say I Love You, is an essential, but somewhat out of place, inclusion in this collection of soulful classics.

The more emotionally infused tracks such as It's a Man's Man's World, If Loving You is Wrong and Love Don't Live Here Anymore are artfully performed and wrench, rather than tug, on the heart strings.

There are also lighter moments with Shaky Ground and a cover of Prince's Thieves in the Temple.

Geyer has a strong voice and knows how to use it to full effect.

Fans of this type of jazz/soul will thoroughly enjoy this latest offering.
